Daniele started her yogic journey in 2001 as a means to recover from a car accident that had left her neck in a very poor state. In her mid-thirties, she had trouble with her knees and could hardly bend forward to pick up her dog's ball. After only 6 months of doing yoga once a week, her neck had drastically improved, her knees weren't sore anymore, and her dog greatly appreciated the renewed ball fetching play sessions with her human. During this process of healing her body with yoga, she also found greater emotional balance, as well as peace of mind. All of these benefits inspired her to become a yoga instructor.
Daniele started with Kundalini Yoga, then Kriya Yoga, and finally found her way to Yogi Amrit Desai and the Amrit Yoga Institute in Florida in 2008. She is certified at the 500-hour level as a Level 1 and 2 Amrit Yoga Instructor, and as a Professional Yoga Nidra Facilitator. She claims that yoga saved her life, and is what's kept her sane all of these years. For her, yoga is the ultimate spiritual pathway to one's true "Self". As an instructor, Daniele uses the timeless teachings of yoga as a platform for healing, achieving personal growth, and attaining a higher spiritual wisdom. Her classes are always unique and versatile, relaxing and balancing, insightful and thought provoking, yet infused with laughter and sometimes goofiness. She believes without a doubt that yoga changes lives, and is the secret to living a balanced, happy, and healthy life. She looks forward to sharing the gift of yoga with those who join her classes.
